Motley Crue To Announce Tour With Poison
Bands to hit the road together in North America
The two bands have confirmed that they will hit the road for the first time together this summer. They will be joined by New York Dolls.
The news comes following a couple of months of rumours that the three bands would be out on the road this year.
No dates have been confirmed as yet but the news is quite a turn-around since 2004 when Nikki had this to say about Poison on his blog:
"No way in fucking hell would we (Brides Of Destruction or Mötley Crüe) ever, ever tour with a f***ing band like Poison," he wrote. "We have had talks with Kiss and I told them very clearly that we would not do the tour if they used Poison. That would be the death of us... I will not be attached to that kind of fake bullshit..."
When questioned about his comments in a May 2004 interview with the Stamford Advocate, Sixx explained, "I was in negotiations and said it depends who else is on the tour. If you're going to do a nostalgia thing, we're not interested. If you go get Jet or The Darkness, it sounds like fun. All of a sudden they come back with Kiss, the Brides and Poison! There ain't no way in hell I'm doing that tour. I will not play with f***ing Poison. There are followers and leaders. I'm not into followers."
